Free Download - Credit Card The Song

The band Motorpool has a song out called 'Credit Card' - I love it - perfect sentiment about the reality of Credit and I know they're site users too.

That's why, for all the right reasons they've decided to make this one a freebie download.


Sample Lyrics


Credit card sweet credit card
You have made things so hard
The first six months were such bliss
But... now I'm hanging on by my finger tips

Lickle bit of politics

There's no way to write this without sounding a wee bit naff, like a stodgy old politician, but wouldn't it be great to get a song like this downloaded and played on the air a lot.

It's a very different way of getting the message out - especially to the under 25s, who may not have learnt the lessons about credit yet. So do spread the word.

  • Thanks Martin:T I so agree. Will send link to son and mates at University. (He hasn't got a credit card cos he knows all about them from me :eek: He also uses this site this site so I will get him to spread the word.) To borrow a phrase, in the cause of financial freedom, 'every little helps'! :D :money:

    In my profession as a debt manganement councillor (in the voluntary sector) I quite often give talks about debt and the problems it causes. I will certainly be including this in my future talks.

    Thanks Martin:money:

  • Martin- do you have a presence on 'myspace' or similar because that might be a way to get the message across better to younger folk (naturally referring them on to this site)?

  • Thanks Martin,
    Great to get freebies but when they have a message like this it's even better! :D
    Will also send link to son and his mates at Uni. It wll be all round the Student Union before you know it!! :cool:
    Bad enough if they have to get into debt with students loans without using these plastic 'virtual' money things. (Another plug will be included for your student tips! )
